    So I'm really missing my side handle Redvolt. I used that for hot swapping pretty much every shoot. Anything on the horizon to fill that void?

    Other than the Revolt expander...
    Shoot for the Impossible...Then do it.

    I think Offhollywood will be coming out with a DSMC2 battery mount with a built-in battery for hot-swap. Probably at least a few more months away... Hoping to hear details soon.

    If you got a d tap to 4 pin lemo cable you can swap without having any weight left on camera, no?

    Exactly, its actually a great solution, quick, works well, and no extra weight.

    As long as your using a cable-less battery module

    Hey Jerek, also using the Switronix Jetpack-X. It just fits on the camera a little funny while using Base Expander and Quick Back. I'd wait for the new Movcam system. There's a top plate with some decent video expansion that plugs into the d-tap of a hot swap unit that sits between the camera body and a v-lock module. Read they almost had it ready and were showing it off at NAB.
